I got an MS-20 with the mod wheel cable disconnected. Looking inside it isn't obvious to me where it plugs back in, anyone know?

just patch the wheel out to where in you want it to go - VCO's, VCFilters with 1/4 in cables... It was never pre-wired. I remember that it seemed strange at first but makes sense..

No, I meant internally. It's wire connection came loose from the wheel to the patchboard. I figured it out after dissassembly.

Here's the schematic http://www.korganalogue.net/korgms/serv ... /m20s.html you'd be looking for a point or connector that has + and - supply and ground.

Title of thread changed back to something useful in order to make this resource useful for future Wiggler searches. Changing the thread title to "Canz go bye-bye" doesn't aid others very much.

If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

My forum searches for "Canz go bye-bye" still yields this thread, so I'm fine with the decision.
